there is no question that the rate of change has increased drasticly.
I wouldn't be surprised if the 2.6.21->2.6.22 changes riveled or exceeded the 1.2.0 -> 1.3.0 changes. the fact that it's happening so quickly with so few problems is amazing.
when I referred to the problems in the 2.0, 2.2, and 2.4 series, I wasn't just thinking of the couple major problems, I'm remembering that there were several 'brown paper bag' releases scattered throughout the series
